Micali will also be participating in “Blockchain, Ask a Fortuneteller” themed  panel discussions. He will be expressing his views in not only the diagnosis of  the decentralized economy and technology, but also the digital currency (CBDC)  issued by central bankers of each country, and on how to overcome limitations  in blockchain technology.   Other prominent figures in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry participating in the conference along with Silvio Micali include, Nick Szabo,  deviser of smart contracts, Adam Back, inventor of the PoW protocol, Gavin  Wood, co-founder of Ethereum, and Kevin Chou, e-sports godfather of the  blockchain game market.  A crucial factor of the main conference D.FINE, held from September 30th to October 1st at the Grand Intercontinental Seoul Parnas, is that it will be the first  Korean conference to be hosted by leading Korean media conglomerates such as Korea JoongAng Daily, Hankyoreh, The Seoul Economic Daily, The Financial  News, and Block Media, alongside co-hosts FactBlock, Hashed, and  Cointelegraph Korea. In addition, D.FINE is sponsored by major cities, Seoul and Busan.
